This dark amber honey is harvested from wild beehives in the forests of Jim Corbett national park and surrounding area. Harvested every year, during the months of April to May, this honey is one of the most sought after in India. The Honey contains the nectar of various wildflowers in it which makes it all the more healthy.
According to Ayurveda, honey from the forests is considered to have the maximum healing properties. According to modern researchers, dark honey from the forests contains the maximum antioxidants in it. Wild Honey from Honey & Spice fits both these descriptions and is a definite healing superfood.
The tribals who collect this honey are trained in sustainable harvesting by the World Wide Fund for Nature and government departments. Sustainable wild honey harvest involves cutting out the honeycomb from the beehive without killing or harming the bees.
Every jar of wild honey you purchase indirectly improves the life of a tribal honey hunter community whose main profession has remained as honey harvesting for thousands of years. This ensures that the tribals do not have to migrate to the cities to live harsh lives away from the land they have lived in as a community for thousands of years. We ensure that the tribals are paid well for their labor, expertise, and vast knowledge of the forest lands.
Each jar of wild honey from honey and spice has the essence and the goodness of a thousand flowers in it.
